Double Dutch drinks at Aubaine

Cocktails

Double Dutch Drinks, founded by Dutch twins Joyce & Raissa, create spirit mixers using all-natural ingredients with unusual flavour combinations. The brand, which is very much in its infancy, currently has two drinks to its name: Pomegranate + Basil, and Cucumber + Watermelon.

Despite being on the scene for less than a year, Double Dutch drinks are currently stocked in Harvey Nichols, Fortnum and Mason, and a whole host of other retailers and bars.

I was lucky enough to meet the twins recently, who disclosed that they’re working on a Christmas drink with chilli and cardamom, which I can’t wait to try!

But for now, you can try their existing range in cocktails at Aubaine restaurants, including the super refreshing Franco Dutch (or make it yourself with the recipe below).

Ingredients
50ml Diplome Gin
150ml Double Dutch pomegranate and basil tonic
2 Basil Leaves
5ml Grenadine
10ml Vanilla syrup
10ml Lime juice
1/8th fresh pomegranate

Garnish
Basil top
Pomegranate wedge

Method
In a high ball glass muddle the Grenadine and basil lightly. Fill the glass with cubed ice, then add the Diplome, lime juice, and seeds from the pomegranate.

Top up with Double Dutch pomegranate and basil tonic and garnish with a sprig of basil and wedge of pomegranate.
